Bengaluru: Minister Dr K Sudhakar has instructed health officials in the flood-hit regions of the state to take all precautions to prevent the outbreak of any disease.

As per the press release, the minister held meetings with senior health officials at Arogya Soudha today and reviewed the preparedness of the Health Department in fighting the floods.

The officials were instructed to spray disinfectant in places that are affected by floods.

The officials have also been told to be on high alert in flood-hit regions and educate people about the potential outbreaks of diseases.

Vulnerable segments such as senior citizens, pregnant women and children must be given special attention during these floods, the minister added.

“The second wave of Covid is not over yet. Ensure that free masks and sanitisers are distributed to people in flood relief centres,” Sudhakar told the officials.

The spread of communicable diseases such as chikangunya and dengue is low this year but the department needs to be on guard for any spike in cases in the coming days, read the release.

The minister also directed the officials to make use of mobile health units in case there are no primary health centres or government hospitals close to flood relief centres.

In worst-affected districts, the department must appoint nodal officers to coordinate with the district administration, he instructed.

Health Commissioner K V Trilok Chandra, Principal Secretary of Medical Education department, MD of National Health Mission Arundhathi Chandrashekar were present at the review meeting.
